Rio 2016: Murray and Nadal forced to wait by rain


Andy Murray and Rafael Nadal were among the stars to see their third-round men's singles matches at Rio 2016 delayed by rain.

Weather caused havoc elsewhere on Wednesday with the rowing hit by a second day of delays in this Games.

Third seed Nadal had been due to face Gilles Simon, but that contest will now open Centre Court on Thursday.

Murray is the highest seed left in the draw after Novak Djokovic was stunned by Juan Martin del Potro in the first round.

The Wimbledon champion's match with Fabio Fognini will follow the Nadal-Simon match on Centre.
